efficientliving.com is proud to be donating to the Tumaini Soccer Project coordinated by Sam Carney and Henry Poole, seniors at Pacific Ridge School in Carlsbad, California.
Sam has been playing soccer since he was a very young boy, and he wants to use soccer as a tool to give back to the global community. Sam started a service group during his sophomore year at Pacific Ridge School that coordinates with Grass Root Soccer, an organization that uses an interactive soccer program to educate children in Africa about the dangers of HIV/AIDS. Sam's connection with this organization led to the development of the Tumaini Soccer Project.
Henry has had a long history with the AMPATH organization in El Doret, Kenya, which operates hospitals and orphanages for the city. In 6th grade, Henry visited El Doret with his family and then came home and raised $13,000 for AMPATH inspired by Drs. Joe Mamlin (Indiana University) and Jane Carter (Brown University), both of who have worked tirelessly for the people of the Rift Valley in Kenya. In 2010, at age 14, Henry travelled to Kenya alone and worked at the Tumaini Street Kid Center in El Doret for three weeks.
Sam and Henry are raising funds in order to develop a soccer program at the center. The goal of the program is to bring a Grass Root Soccer clinic to the Tumaini Center. In addition to the soccer clinic, they hope to raise money to buy new equipment and supplies for the Tumaini Center as the center's resources are currently limited. Sam and Henry are extremely grateful for any support given to their efforts. For the months of July and August 2013, efficientliving.com will donate 10% of all sales from around the country towards the project and an additional 10% of sales to the states of California, Rhode Island, and Indiana.
